cliffhangers, plot twist and the unexpected
Lost - series 2 Part 1 (DVD) A very different type of mystery tv series. During the series, which starts with a plane crash, you follow the life stories of the characters involved. The viewer is shown how these characters have been thrown together because of the plane crash. Only to reveal through fate or chance they may have met before!
I like this whole series, with twists and turns through the individual episodes, there is always a cliffhanger at the end.
Buying the box set allowed me to watch at my own pace (4 episodes a night) and catch up on episodes i had missed when shown on the television.
There are lots of extra features on each disc as well as a dedicated bonus disc included. These give an insight of the characters from the actors point of view with some interesting stories.
On the bad side this series is very addictive and will not let you go easily!

Lost - Series 2 - Part 1
I have been lucky enough to watch series 2 in its entirety and I can honestly say that I was not disappointed with the follow up to the first 24 episodes. Season 1 brought us the now well used serial format used by 24, Prison Break etc, but with a twist. Never before has a series been so uniquely composed asking so many questions and giving few answers while still managing to keep the viewer intrigued and desperate for the next episode.
Series 2 goes 'behind the hatch' discovered towards the end of series 1. The first few episodes follow along nicely from what has went before until we get bogged down, only a little!! by only a few weak episodes, before the action and mystery pick up again as more of the island and its secrets are revealed at an alarming pace. The season finale which draws together the last two episodes are superb and should leave any fan longing for season 3 which for me cannot come quickly enough.
Season 2 continues to add more depth to the characters introduced in the 1st. The contrast between the personalities their backgrounds and the seemingly never ending plot twists provide a potent formula for the viewer. The locations used for shooting, background music and direction all come together well to make this a strong 2nd season
As a fan of the show and the concept I would strongly recommend Lost. To those who have seen season 1 be ready for more of those ' I didn't see that coming' moments and to those who haven't seen the show before, why don't you use the summer to watch season 1 and catch up before diving into season 2. Enjoy.

Lost - Series 2 - Part 1 (DVD)
I have watched Lost since the begin and I am completely hooked, always awaiting the next episode. It is a fantastic programme full of countless layers of mystery and intrigue concerning the characters themselves and the island. I have literally been on the edge of my seat during some episodes. The story-line is perhaps the best I have ever come across. I bought this particular DVD box-set because I missed a few of the episodes when they were on TV and I HAD to catch up. However, even if I had not missed the episodes I would still have bought this box-set as it is great to watch them again.

Lost series 2 part 1
I bought lost series 1, part 1 and 2 and thought i'd carry on the collection with this set. Got too say ebay do have the best prices even for the brand new dvd's was going to buy these on play.com but they were like tripple what i paid on here. Cant wait for them too arrive and too carry on the rest of my collection and eventually collect the whole set :D
i love lost!
Bought this as I needed to play catch up, started to watch Lost fairly late on and therefore while I was watching the DVD's of series one, series two had started and therefore I needed to catch up. Came on Ebay searched for Part One Series Two of Lost and found this. Won it, had it posted, watched it and then best of all, sold it on Ebay a week or so later for roughly what I paid for it!!!! Perfect!!!
